Newbie question

Hello,
I am new to the forum and have a typically dumb newbie question. I have a couple of photos where I would like to remove a double chin (without actual surgery (: ) and wondered if Elements 9 has a tool that would work. I also have iPhoto. Given my skill level I don't think the fully loaded Photoshop would be right for me.

Many thanks,
Lynn

Re: Newbie question

The Liquify Filter is often used as one of the tools for "surgery" and is available on Photoshop Elements 9. That just pushes/squishes pixels around which will be needed yet on top of the Liquify Filter my guess is that you need to do some cloning/healing in those areas after using Liquify.

I would search the internet for some tutorials on how to use the Liquify filter to get up to speed on its capabilities. Hope this helps get you started.
